Maryclare McCauley began studying yoga nearly twenty years ago. Her training experience includes Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Shadow Yoga. Her primary teacher is Mark Horner, in Walnut Creek. She has a background in science and Breema from which she draws to enrich her classes. Maryclare is sensitive to the needs of her students and strives to create a peaceful and open environment in which to practice. She gently encourages and directs her students to work from the inside out, allowing the breath and body weight to be the support, focus and connection to one’s true nature. Maryclare is a mother to an eight and twenty year old, both girls. During her free time she enjoys reading, writing and performing her short stories, politics, dancing, walking her dog, finding bargains at thrift stores and planning parties.
